“Alonso got carried away when he got out of the car”

Based on the table of points, it could be said that Fernando Alonso (71) is behind his teammate. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Asturian is watching how his season is weighed down due to reliability problems that are affecting Alpine in general and the two-time champion in particular, as happened for the last time during the Mexican GP. Fernando estimates a loss of points that exceeds 60 due to the repeated abandonment that has caused him the mechanics of the A522 (he has retired five times), but that hasn’t dampened his good work during a season in which he continues to receive constant praise.

His performance is well above the potential offered by the car and not even the frustration generated by not competing due to factors external to the driver himself have made him Fernando’s performance has been affected. Rather the complete opposite. Even the pilot himself declares himself right now in his best moment and the good news at this point, despite Alpine’s apologies to Alonso, is that there are only two races left inside the Enstone factory. 2023 will welcome a new stage for the two-time champion in Formula 1, which will arrive alongside Aston Martin. A Priori, a more competitive machine awaits him, or at least more reliable, with which the Spanish “He will be in charge of bringing out his magic”, as you said decided Jenson Button in Sky Sports F1.

The one who was Fernando’s partner in McLaren during the 2015 and 2016 seasons, has valued the situation that the Spaniard is going through in a season where Alpine decided to prioritize power over reliability. Coincidentally, “a car always stops” as Alonso declared after the race in Mexico and at that moment in which the two-time champion got to the microphones, it was when “got carried away” according to Button. For the Briton “it is hard to see that a rider of his level has all these problems when he is in his best moment at the age of 41”, but until the moment of being out of the race, he maintained a “very positive” attitude, at least “on the radio”.

Alonso He seemed up for the challenge but then what happened happened.” The British champion is clear that “it was hard for Fernando” the moment of abandonment after seeing how other pilots “one of them his teammate (Or with)” they overtook him due to the breakdown, but he hopes that all these results will be anecdotal from next year. Button is sure that the Asturian “hope to find a more reliable package next year” with Aston Martin and then the two-time champion will ensure that “the car is competitive”: “He is still a great talent, He has a lot of passion and love for this sport.”
